I can build a strong, safe and trusting relationship with you
What I specialise in:

What will the first session look like? The first session gives you the opportunity to see whether you feel at ease with me, and if you want to start to explore some of the issues that have brought you to counselling. Following this initial meeting we will work out the best counselling approach to help you move forward.
I can offer daytime, evening and some weekend appointments.
